FY22 Federal High School Graduation Rates. Executive Summary
Boggess, John-Anthony; Miller, Adam
School District of Palm Beach County
On January 13, 2023 the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) released high school graduation rates for the State of Florida and the District. The FY22 Federal High School Graduation Rate includes standard diplomas but excludes special diplomas and General Education Diplomas (GEDs). Students with Disabilities (SWD) on Access Points curriculum are working to earn a standard diploma and are included as graduates, if successful. It should be noted that due to COVID-19, assessment requirements for graduation were waived for FY20 and FY21 seniors (Emergency Order No. 2021-EO-02) who had yet to meet them. This fact should be kept in mind when comparing the FY22 graduation rates with rates from the past two years. In FY22, the District's overall graduation rate was 89.0%. In addition, the District's overall graduation rate exceeded Florida and the six other large urban school districts. While the graduation rate decreased from 91.0% in FY21 to 89.0% in FY22 and decreased for each subgroup, this was due to the removal of the assessment waiver that had been in place for FY20 and FY21. When compared to FY19 (the last comparable year) graduation rates increased overall and for each subgroup. The tables presented in this report provide five-year (FY18-FY22) historical summaries. Table 1 reports the graduation rates for Florida, the District, and six other large urban school districts. Table 2 shows the graduation rates for Black, Hispanic, White, ELL, FRL, and SWD students. Table 3 reports the graduation rates for District-operated and Charter schools. Tables 4 to 6 report graduation rates for District-operated high schools, Charter high schools, and Alternative high schools, respectively. [For the FY21 report, see ED627242.]
